    Partitioning, Formatting and Reinstalling in Windows 98 - There are two...

    (Page 2 of 5 )

    There are two kinds of partitions: primary DOS and extended DOS, and you can create logical DOS partitions within the extended partitions.

    The primary partition is your active partition and this is from where your computer boots, sort of like a system partition.

    The extended partition is a placeholder where you can create all the other logical partitions.

    File System is basically the way that files are stored on your computer. Windows 98 supports two kinds of file systems: File Allocation Table 16 (FAT 16) and file Allocation Table (FAT 32).

    FAT 16 can support a drive of maximum 2 GB in size. For example, if you have an 8 GB hard disk, then you can have 4 drives of 2 GB each.

    FAT 32 on the other hand can support a drive of up to 2 Terabytes in size.

    Before actually going ahead and doing the reinstall it is advisable to back up any and all of your data and device drivers as a format will wipe out all your data on the drive.

    There are two ways of backing up your data and device drivers:

    * Save them in a storage media like floppy drivers, CD's, zip disks etc.

    * If you have a partitioned hard disk and you do not plan to format a particular drive then back up all your data there.
